Chatted for a few minutes with scout.com recruiting mega-star Evan Daniels this afternoon and got 2 good notes from him about UK recruiting. First, I simply asked him if there was any worry about UK not having any commitments yet for the Class of 2012 (sans Harrow). He simply responded with “Nope, no worries.” So for those who have started voicing concerns about that fact, Daniels would know, and he says no worries.
Secondly, he gave me the name WILLIE CAULEY as somebody that Kentucky is at least looking at. It’s a name that hasn’t been mentioned here on KSR, but Evan confirmed that Orlando Antigua was watching Cauley at the Summer Jam Tournament last week. He gave me this rundown of what kind of player Cauley is:
“One of the more intriguing post prospects in the 2012 class, Cauley is long, athletic and runs the floor with ease. He has great touch around the rim and appears to be taking the necessary steps in his development.”
Cauley is currently ranked #36 overall in the Class of 2012 and comes from Olathe, Kansas. He lists a slew of schools on his interest list, including Kansas and Kansas State, but Kentucky has yet to crack it. But trust me, if Daniels says there is at least interest, there is some interest. And even if there is nothing to report here, it does give me a chance to post another awesome highlight video:
